I have a i586 file/print server.  I even have a mini i386 port but it's
not much fun to use.  :)  However I'm not interested in running an
official i586 port since the packages are stripped down for file
serving/printing - as in no X and no optional libraries.

Are you using kernel 2.6 for the VIA port?
